What a whirlwind adventure I had! It has taken me two days to sit and write this blog because every time I have tried I teared up. And believe me, this blog is about to be anything but eloquently worded, as I just need to get it out while I can!  Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that… MORE

Wavy Lasagna with Italian Sausage and Marinara Sauce
This is a good, basic lasagna recipe. The only thing I did differently was not pre-boiling the noodles. I just layered them in uncooked and made sure there was plenty of sauce and cheese covering them. I allowed a few extra minutes of bake time to ensure they were tender and done. The Barilla wavy lasagna is easy to use and it tasted great. We enjoyed this.

Thin Spaghetti with Garlic, Red Pepper and Olive Oil
I made this just as directed and thought it was wonderful. After tasting I did add just an extra sprinkle of red pepper flakes to my plate for a bit more of a kick, but that's just personal preference. Served with a side of garlic bread and a green salad, this is a fast, easy to prepare meal that's light but filling.

Mini Rotini with Carrots and Peas
We needed a quick lunch before an impromptu trip to the zoo. This was so simple, fast, and tasty! I did not have any leeks on hand, so I used 2 cloves of fresh, shaved garlic. I also swapped out 2 Tbsp of the olive oil for 2 Tbsp of organic coconut oil and I also exchanged the salt for coarse ground garlic salt. Finally, I topped it all with freshly cracked black pepper and shredded Parmesan cheese. Quick, delicious, and a hit with all four of my kids!
